Focus On… Preloved to re-loved

From preloved to re-loved, sometimes the best gift you can give has been in existence for years…


There are so many beautiful antique, salvage and up-cycling stores in and around The Court and a weekend spent browsing through their wares can throw up some of the most unique finds. While we might not be able to shop in person for a while, here’s a selection of those offering an online or click and collect service…



The Hampton Court Emporium

Not one to let lockdown stop her spreading the word about her beautiful pieces available at The Hampton Court Emporium, Kirsty Love has set up an Instagram account to showcase the one-off preloved pieces she’s curated for sale. From vintage jewellery and clothing, handstitched beaded bags to spectacular champagne glasses and ornate plates and cutlery. Her account is a real treasure trove.

Enigma Salvage

Described as an ‘Emporium for the Everyday’, Enigma Salvage has a wide and wonderful range of pieces available online. Recent acquisitions include a set of tarot cards from the 1970’s, vintage movie posters, first edition books, the perfect snuggle seats to spend lockdown reading from, and a variety of light fittings. enigmasalvage.co.uk

Belle Epoque

Belle Epoque is the Walton Road shop that continually attracts people to its windows. Although not everything in the store is preloved, they sell a stunning selection of vintage and antique glasses, mirrors, tables, seats and decorations – and much more – often reconditioned and lovingly brought back to life. Time spent browsing at Belle Epoque (even online) is time happily spent.
